The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Automotive engineers had made incredible advancements in the last decade of the 20th century. The rise of powerful onboard computers and composite materials had been amassed by automakers around the world. With the idea of something that would shake the world, Volkswagen brought together the best ideas and people to revive Bugatti. The Bugatti Veyron specs encompass a decade of production and laying low any preconceived notions of a street-legal supercar. What began in 1909 was an iconic brand of high-performance cars by Ettore Bugatti. He built his cars in Molsheim, Germany, but after two World Wars, Molsheim was ceded to France. As a native of Italy, his brand truly unites Europe unlike any other. Volkswagen acquired the rights to the name and the automobile company in 1998.

The long honeymoon between Donald Trump and the financial markets appears to be over or, has at least, landed in some trouble in the first part of 2018. It is too early to call the movement seen in the last few weeks an inversion but it is clear even to non-experts that something has changed. The US indices, after long months of rallies and new records, have stopped their bullish impulse. Since January, the Dow Jones and S&P 500 haven't marked any new records and now that we are in early May, the indices sit less than 10% below their previous peak, so consequences do remain limited.The main story behind this is clearly about the Tycoon and his decision to announce new steel and aluminium tariffs with other import taxes on goods from China. Of course, Trump's movement generated a strong Chinese reaction with the Beijing government announcing tariffs on US items and initiating a real commercial war.
